Brian May for S@N ?

Recommended Posts

Brian won't do it, he was to close to Patrick to stand in Patricks shoes.

I'd have thought his response was likely to be "Why don't you find someone to do it who might also appeal to the part of the audience under 40?" I have a huge amount of respect for him and enjoy it when he has been on the show, but I struggle to see why anyone might think he's the right person for the job.

As for the linked article, I think they're only claiming it's a rumour because they're trying to start it...

The article said the BBC were still undecided whether or not to continue the show? Is that right? First I'd heard.

Not strictly true, if you Google it there are many different sources - loads from the music press! - salt duly pinched!

Actually I think the current presenters could do an excellent job so see no need for any real changes - but TV always like an anchorman - so who knows?1

Hmmm, he is also known for his stance on badgers and TB which splits opinions. Saw his wife dance on tv though. Yes I have been on the cider and wine-it's cloudy outside.

Cheers,

Steve

Ive heard alot about Brian Cox doing it, but as he has his own show (wonders of the universe) its doubtful. I do hope S@N can keep it going without Sir Patrick, seen it a few times where shows never manage to recover.

Why dont we all just step back from the rumours and remember the tremendous legacy Patrick has left us with

Sky At Night = Sir Patrick Moore

Leave it at that and start a completely new Astronomy show, rebranded with new presenters. That way, no shoes to fill and the Sir Patrick and Sky At Night legacy remains intact.

How's that sound?

That would be very good. But i doubt it will happen like that.

I see nothing wrong with carrying on with the sky at night, I think Sir Patrick would have wanted it to continue.

How about a guest presenter each week? Seems to work well on other BBC shows when the main presenter is no longer available.

i may be a voice in the dark here but my personal opinion is that Brian Cox is avery poor at explaining things

Really? I think hes brilliant at explaining things. He could explain the most complicated thing in the world to me, and id still be able to understand it

I think they should probably draw it to a close, and leave it as Patrick's ultimate legacy. I mean how many of us actually get our information from the TV anymore?

+1 on that Matt.I have always found him very watchable. His laid back presentation may not suit everyone but his wonders of the universe was a massive success and if he could bring some of that to S@N without changing it from what SPM left us, then for me he would be the man.

On another note, nothing against the co-presenters, but wouldn't a better known front man build, rather than just maintain the programme?

It also helps that I could actually make out the words coming out of brians mouth. Would have needed a translator for the other guy.

Sky at night should not finish,Patrick would be horrified at the thought.At the end of the day,although we have lost Patrick,astronomy and science moves along.It is a very interesting and mixed programme with some exellent presenters,who can communicate well.

I,m sure this will have at some point been discussed with Patrick,and plans will no doubt take shape,but to take it off the air would seem pointless to me.

Mick.
